You can win free stuff shipped by Amazon.
Note: As of October, 2019, the Amazon Giveaway program has been canceled. However, Goodreads Giveaways are still available.
Visit the Twitter page for the hashtag #AmazonGiveaway:
When you visit this page, it only shows you a few of the results.
It doesn’t show you all of the results
UNLESS… you click the ALL link at the top of the page, under where it says, “Results for #AmazonGiveaway.”
By default, it only shows what it considers to be the top results.
When I browse the top results, I find a limited number of giveaways from the past several hours, and below that I find expired giveaways.
Increase your chances of winning by clicking ALL instead of the default TOP.
When I pull up all of the giveaways, I find many more giveaways that I can enter, which haven’t expired.
If you create your own giveaway, tweet about it with the hashtag #AmazonGiveaway.
This adds your contest to the Amazon Giveaway page at Twitter.
However, when you search for your contest on the Amazon Giveaway hashtag page, you might not see it unless you click the ALL link.
After clicking ALL, you should be able to find your contest.
Here is your chance to win my Visual Guide to Extra Dimensions book in an Amazon Giveaway. No purchase necessary. See official rules: http://amzn.to/GArules. Just click this link to enter (you can enter even if you already follow me; it’s not restricted to new Twitter followers):
Note that the hashtag page for #AmazonGiveaway shows all tweets using this hashtag, whereas the similar @AmazonGiveaway does not. (Of course, one is the hashtag, the other is the entity.) However, if you visit @AmazonGiveaway by mistake, you can click the #AmazonGiveaway hashtag in one of their recent tweets to reach the hashtag page.

That’s a cool thing Chris – but I did want to win! 😦 ~Elle
I have yet to win one myself. But I have better chances now that I discovered giveaways that don’t show on the main page. 🙂
Ive won 4 or 5 books so far, but not yours!
Congratulations on winning some of these contests. I’m sorry you haven’t won mine yet. Thank you for trying. 🙂
Thanks, Chris, for sharing this information. 🙂
You’re welcome. I’d like everyone entering these giveaways to know about it. 🙂
Awww…didn’t win but it was kinda fun! Especially like the box that opens with the prize right there! Will have to check it out 🙂 Thanks Chris!
That box is fun (unless you try to win several contests at one sitting). I’m sorry you didn’t win. Thank you for trying. 🙂
